The increasing popularity of fantasy and science fiction themes in art is both celebrated and summarized in the sumptuous Spectrum series, which in eight years has become the premier venue for such art and an invaluable resource for art directors and illustrators. Spectrum 8 has a wider reach than any previous volume, featuring works from Germany, England, the Netherlands, Croatia, Canada, and France, in addition to those of American artists. The roster includes James Gurney (Dinotopia books), Anita Kunz (illustrator for Rolling Stone magazine), and many more. Jean Moebius Giraud is honored with an illustrated biography, while the Year in Review preface puts the entire field in focus. Includes 250 full-color illustrations.
